The Behind the Scener’s: Michael Nystrom and Robot Jon

*****************************************************************

A recently leaked interview with jam session creator and proprietor, and the one and only mdefarge.

Medfarge: But Jen, we still don’t understand; why did you do it?

Jen: Well M, a few years ago I found myself in a quandary over the state of the libertarian party, and I went looking online for answers and I stumbled upon this site called the dailypaul. After a while of observing, it humored me slightly how upset the crowd would sometimes become at off topic type threads. Upon joining the site, I was met with some angry type characters and I often posted weird stuff and or crappy forwards my aunt sends me in an effort to mock them a little and laugh at their quick rise to anger over silly things. One night I was really bored and thought I’d start a music thread. I thought for sure it would either get unpublished, or I would get a song or 2 every few weeks in the comments. That was all I was expecting. I even told my roommate at the time that this was not the right crowd for a jam session and that there was no way they could jam with me.

M: So this whole thing was supposed to be a joke?

Jen: Yes, to me at least, but I would never forget the jam session’s co-owner and proprietor; No.7. He took the thread very seriously, and he was more excited about it in the beginning than I was.

This is our internet love child. He eventually had to leave me with the child as someone around here has to work and pay the bills.

It’s ok though, I don’t mind being a stay at home Mom, and he always remembers to send child support.

M: Thanks for the history on the jam session, are you ready for some questions from your fans?

Jen: My fans? Well of course, the fans are the best. They are the life blood, and they are why I get up in the morning and do what I do in here every day

M: Ok, well we will start with Mountaincat, he would like to know what one of your favorite new finds from the thread was?

Jen: Oh Mountaincat, I thought I had already told you how much I loved Elizabeth Laprelle and how her voice is out of this world, and how I’ll never be able to thank you enough for her.

M: The next question is from John Robb, he wants to know if you will marry him?

Jen: *blushes* Awwww, Well, John Robb you know as well as I do that we can’t get married. We are both wild stallions and we can’t be tied down. However, we are kindred spirits, and I know that if we were ever to just run into each other in the real world we would click and I would attach myself to you as one of my best friends.

It is hard to be similar to Lady Brett Ashley and Jake Barnes from The Sun Also Rises, but our kind of love is meant to be tragic and is meant to go down in history…. Just Like Romeo and Juliet.

We’ll have to just be content with being each other’s one’s that got away. We were so romantic John Robb

M: Has wants to know if you will tell the Brad Pitt story.

Jen: Ummm….Ok, I suppose. After Hurricane Katrina I was working on the rebuilding efforts in the gulf coast and the small little nonprofit that I was working for up and ran out of funding money, but that was OK because there were tons of nonprofits in the area looking for help. I went and found a job working for a nonprofit that was run by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (They had a house down there and after the Hurricane they put a lot of money into various rebuilding nonprofits). One day my site supervisor pulled me and a few ppl aside and told us we had a special catered lunch waiting for us. We got to the site where the lunch was and there was a huge catered buffet of amazingness with a note from the nonprofit’s owners thanking us for our work and explaining they would like to buy us lunch. (They weren’t there…) So, essentially, Brad Pitt bought me lunch. Alright has, there ya go, but I really don’t know what this has to do with music or the jam session….You’re so weird has.

M:Johncarter wants to know if you will go take over a jukebox with him somewhere sometime?

Jen: If I am ever anywhere near Johncater and I am aware of it, it would be my pleasure to get together with him and a roll of quarters to take over a jukebox with some classic rock, and the only way to make what would already be a really cool situation any better would be if Rocketman and Sierra could come along also.

M: Jon has a question he would like to ask.

Jen: Of course he does, that guy would be lost without me, I have to explain everything to him, proceed….

M: He would like to know if you are sure you did not create the thread just to make his life a little more frustrating around here.

Jen: Gasp. Jon, I’m appalled that you would think that. No, I would do no such thing. I am sorry if it ever gave you a headache and we all appreciate the buttons and whatnot. And on that note for anyone wondering where or how they can keep in touch with their jam session friends, Jon was a step ahead of the game and he made this just so we can all still hang out together and play together. Isn’t it great?

M: Ducky wants to know if you are embarrassed about the one time you admitted Dirty Dancing is one of your favorite movies and the thread stopped for a few minutes and no one really knew what to say to you?

Jen: Ha! Not at all, Dirty Dancing is a great movie and I stand firmly by it.

M: Steve024 wants to know what you got from him?

Jen: Him and No.7 gave me a run for my money with the country music. It’s not that I disliked country music prior to this thread, but I have a whole new appreciation for it. I used to call Steve024, Wes, and No.7 The Sons of the South, and my love of some of the musicians they found me is undying and I will never ever ever ever under any circumstances be able to thank the 3 of them for Townes Van Zandt enough. I don’t even know how I made it this far in this world without some Townes. Every girl needs a Townes song in her life and they made sure I had plenty.

And the crowd. Went. Wild.

The jam session makes the dp more kewl

-2/27/13 Wes
I Love this thread

-2/16/13 Laurelai
I’ve so enjoyed this thread, you have created a monster, just try and make it go away.(Oh, the irony)

-2/16/13 Wes
This thread has the only sane folks I can find on this site

-3/12/13 P Nicholson
What a great thread

-3/18/13 Gomez
Brilliant thread

-3/21/13 Michael Nystrom
It always gives me great pleasure (mucho gusto!) to see this thread title on the Active Forum Topics list at all hours of the day and night. It means that people are here having a good time. This is the most epic thread of all.

-3/25/13 SFTS
No negative comments? If thats true then this thread stands alone on the DP in that regard. Are you sure?
You mean people are not arguing over genre lines on this thread the way they argue over party lines on other DP forum threads?
You mean people are not accusing Stevie Ray Vaughn fans of riding Jimi Hendrix coattails and trying to capitalize off all Jimi's hard work?
People aren't accusing Elvis of not being a real [purist] musician because he played by ear and couldn't read music?
They're not calling each other names and making veiled threats toward each other for disagreeing on which is the best vehicle to spread "the message" of rock-n-roll to the masses, The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
Seriously, people aren't suggesting you're a traitor or fair weather fan if you don't write-in Elvis for King of Rock-n-Roll in the November election? And just because Buddy Holly made it onto the ballot doesn't mean he's tied to the CFR?
You mean to tell me Johnny Cash isn't a troll? James Brown a shill? Zappa an infiltrator? Patsy Cline a femin-nazi? Wolfman Jack a tin foil hat conspiracy theorist?
This thread is "whats happening" - this is where it's at.

-4/15/13 Tao
“I have so thoroughly enjoyed my time here, this is far and away the best thread on the web.

-4/15/13 SFTS
I listen often enough to attest to the fact this is some really fantastic music thread these young-in's (and young at heart) have built here.

-4/20/13 President Paul or Bust
I only regret that I have but one upvote to give. I love this thread and the amazing jams DP-ers post.

-5/2/13 From Rocketman
Start and end your visit on this thread and you always leave smiling.

-5/4/13 DJP
Try going to the nightly jam session thread. That always helps me lighten up the mood, while catching up on DP posts.

-5/11/13 Bigmikedude
This thread is too fun man

-10/16/13 Ralph
That is what I do. Go to the jam session to get happy. Lots of good music.

This is the best place to chill

-12/31/13 From Michael Nystrom
Original, Powerful, Epic, and Transformational.

-1/13/14 Steve 024
Best thread on the internet

-2/19/14 Mingeem
I am thankful for you and "My nightly jam session". Many days it would be the only thing that brought a smile to my face.

-2/19/14 Has
Maybe I’m amazed, and maybe it's just that the jam session is amazing. I'd vote it up everyday if I could.

-2/25/14 Mdefarge
I've also got an "old fashioned" corkboard bulletin board right here beside me. Three recent treasures to go up are jam session related, photos/screenshots that made me smile that I printed out. :)

-4/13/14 Ira Freeman
I also come here because of Jam Session. I've listened to more music in the year or so it's been up than my last 40!

-4/25/14 Mdefarge
It's as if by osmosis that someone or another here at the jam session would try to lure me into playing a game of fetch or tug of war and leave me smiling, sometimes even all choked up.

-5/30/14 Kinsjon
This is my all time favorite DP thread and I check it everyday.

-6/1/14 Mdefarge
The jam session evolved into a community within a community

**********************************************************************

Mdefarge: Would you mind letting us in on your top ten picks from this thread?

Jen: Only if no one’s feelings are hurt if their song does not show up in the top 10.

M: I think we can all handle it.

Jen: Ok.Top 10. Some of these were new finds, some were old favorites that took on new meaning due to them being played in here by certain people.

San Bernadino by The Emperors
Have You Ever Seen The Rain? by Willie Nelson Featuring Paula Nelson
When I Paint My Masterpiece by Dylan
Louis Louis by Teitur
It’s Alright by Thomas Wynn and the Believers
East Virginia by Elizabeth Laprelle
Flat Earth by Thomas Dolby
To Ramona by Sinead Lohan
Baby Will Ram by Rusted Root
Like a Summer Thursday by Townes Van Zandt
Starfish and Coffee by Prince (because all of us were ordinary compared to Cynthia Rose)
I Mua by Nahko the best song ever, of all the songs in all the world. I’ll keep traveling til my heart finds peace, and even when it does I’ll keep moving because there is so much to see. Ground beneath bare feet

M: Ummm, Jen that is 12, not 10

Jen: Yeah? Who is counting?

M: Me

Jen: You were always counting weren’t you M?

********************************************************************

Math with Jen

Ok, so there are currently 13,693 comments in this thread. Some comments have tons of songs like MikeFWT’s alt rock updates. Some just have two or three. Some just have one. Some have no songs, just comments. Some are double plays. So, I decided that there are 16,000 songs total in the thread. Don’t ask me how I came up with that number, I’m afraid my math skills are far too advanced for me to be explaining this stuff to you guys, just trust me and go with it.

Moving on…Through various non-peer reviewed google inquiries I have found that 1 gig holds roughly 300 songs, although it is quite hard to approximate due to varying song lengths, but were going to go with 300.

Sooooo….if 300s=1g (stay with me guys, I have this under control)
6,000s= 47g ish.
Yup. 47 ish gigs of music right here at the Dailypaul, in this very thread.

***********************************************************************

M: Why are you retiring it?

Jen: Because it (and I) is old and tired and it deserves a break.

M: Where can we post our music?

Jen: All over! There are tons of music threads here, any one of them will work just fine. And, the wonderful Mr. Johncarter has started a new one and will make an amazing host/dj http://www.dailypaul.com/320551/time-for-my-nightly-jam-sess... or you can say RIP here also http://www.dailypaul.com/320560/the-best-thing-about-the-ori...
********************************************************************

And now for a word from the mayor of the DP Michael Nystrom:

"Hey, is it okay if I play some classical in here?"

********************************************************************
M: Well, I guess it is time for your final jam session song.

Jen: I guess so. If I Don’t See You Again. By Neil Diamond.

"If I Don't See You Again"

If I don't see you again
It was a hell of a ride
Don't need to say let's be friends
Don't need to promise you'll write

We rode that train through the night
And never cared where it went
If I don't see you again
If I don't see you again

We ran a whole other race
Two strangers meet on the road
And find a time and a place
We never once had to lie
We've passed the age of consent
If I don't see you again

I know it's crazy out there
My head is sleeping around
I went out looking for love
And never liked what I found

Don't pay to make it alone
God knows it's lonely out there
I made it once on my own
And hardly anyone cared
If I don't see you again

Who you gonna run to baby
Who you gonna hide behind when the nights
It's suddenly cold
Who's gonna hold you
Who's gonna love you
Who will you go to

Who you gonna call if it ain't me
When you're feeling lost
And there is nobody out there
Looking for you
What will you do
Where will you go
If I don't see you again
If I don't see you again

You made it happen somehow
I think I gave up on life
But I feel better right now
Something you see turn around
Don't need to know what you meant
If I don't see you again

And at the end of the day
I hated sleeping alone
There's nothing worse when you're lost
And you don't wanna go home
It's gonna work out some way
I just don't wanna be found
I'm waiting here round the bay
And I'll be hanging around
If I don't see you again

Who am I kidding
I'm going nowhere
I can't even get through
An hour without you
Should be ashamed
Just wanna hear you
Calling my name

Two of those missed conventions
These men must have somehow missed something more
Cause we're here alone
I know we're together
To fall apart
I know how to get back home
Each time we say that
Cause you're frustrated too long
You've been too lonely to know
To find that something is wrong

The time if perfect to go
Before the curtain descents
Right now when both of us know
That everything has got to end
If I don't see you again

What's it gonna come to baby
Who you gonna hide behind when the nights
Get filled up with dirt
Looking to run
You're running away
And when you came on to save me
Doesn't look like the future is clear
I need you to hear me
Praying to
But nobody hears me
I had a plan to the moon
Each time you're saying good bye
Cause if I stayed for too long
You get too lonely to work
To find that something was wrong

The time is perfect to go
Before the curtain descents
Right now when both of us know
Everything has got to end
If I don't see you again
If I don't see you again

Somehow we both made it through
I would have gave up on life
Before I gave up on you
You went and turned me around
Could be with something you said
I couldn't make out the sound
I didn't care what it meant
If I don't see you again
If I don't see you again
If I don't see you again

So long, butterfly. (Can't pin her down.)

This one's for you.


http://youtu.be/SjF6akZ2WqI


She weaves secrets in her hair
The whispers are not hers to share.
She's deep as a well.
She's deep as a well.


Another day wastes away,
And my heart sinks with the sun.
A new day's dawning,
And a new day has not yet begun.


So anyway,
There I was
Just sitting on your porch
Drinking in the sweetest decline.
The sweetest decline.
The sweetest decline.


What's the use in regrets
They're just things we haven't done yet.
What are regrets?
They're just lessons we haven't learned yet.


Another day draws away,
And my heart sinks with the sun.
It's like catching snow on my tongue.
It's like catching snow on my tongue.


So anyway,
There I was
Just sitting on your porch
Drinking in the sweetest decline.
The sweetest decline.


What are regrets?
What are regrets?
They're just lessons we haven't learned yet.
It's like catching snow on your tongue.
You can't pin this butterfly down.
Can't pin this butterfly down.

He's the man.

Dearest Michael Nystrom

I wanted you to have this guy for a few reasons; first and foremost he is just really funking good. Next, he sounds a lot like Dylan, and the final reason; his story. His story is amazing.

He started playing in dive bars in Detroit in the 70’s but he didn’t go anywhere in Detroit other than a few local people who remember having heard him. Somehow…..someway, pre internet days his music made it to South Africa (there are a few fables as to how, but nothing for sure) and he became more well known in South Africa than Elvis according to some. He is also said to have helped inspire the anti apartheid revolution there, as anyone who was anyone in South Africa knew his records and had them. While he was climbing the charts and claiming fame in South Africa he was back in Detroit working construction. He didn’t even know about it, he had no idea he was aiding a revolution half way across the world. He had no idea his music was insanely popular there.. He has also been rumored as being dead on numerous occasions because no one knew how to get a hold of him. There are some really great documentaries on him; Dead Men Don’t Tour and Searching For Sugarman

Here are some more articles on him if you are interested.
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/rodriguez-10-things-y...
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/coachella-2013-10-mu...

His story is the stuff legends are made of. This is one of my favorites from him, there is conviction in this song. I think he bled into it.

Cause I lost my job two weeks before Christmas
And I talked to Jesus at the sewer
And the Pope said it was none of his God-damned business
While the rain drank champagne

My Estonian Archangel came and got me wasted
Cause the sweetest kiss I ever got is the one I've never tasted
Oh but they'll take their bonus pay to Molly McDonald,
Neon ladies, beauty is that which obeys, is bought or borrowed

Cause my heart's become a crooked hotel full of rumours
But it's I who pays the rent for these fingered-face out-of-tuners
And I make 16 solid half hour friendships every evening

Cause your queen of hearts who is half a stone
And likes to laugh alone is always threatening you with leaving
Oh but they play those token games on Willy Thompson
And give a medal to replace the son of Mrs. Annie Johnson

Cause they told me everybody's got to pay their dues
And I explained that I had overpaid them
So overdued I went to the company store
And the clerk there said that they had just been invaded
So I set sail in a teardrop and escaped beneath the doorsill

Cause the smell of her perfume echoes in my head still
Cause I see my people trying to drown the sun
In weekends of whiskey sours
Cause how many times can you wake up in this comic book and plant flowers?

And with that I present to you; Sixto Rodriguez.

Sweet, thank you.

I know about this guy. I saw Searching for Sugarman. It was awesome, and it made me cry. But I didn't know that he liked Whiskey Sours, too.

I'm leaving my song for you above, in your last comment, butterfly.

He's the man.
jrd3820's picture

John Robb, I'm going to give you this song,

But be careful with it. Don't break it, it is one of my favorites.

I am going to tell Michael this story about this guy also. I am picky over who I share his music with, but I think you would appreciate it, you might actually already know his story....

Moving on. I unplug in the summer for a few weeks at a time. I did this last year also, but do you wanna hear a story before I take off? Of course you do.

Last year there was this guy in here named Wes, and I was in love with him. He was my internet bff. And when I left for just a few weeks last summer I told him I hoped he would be here when I got back. And he laughed at me and said he would be here and he even had the nerve to play “Close your eyes I’ll be here in the morning” by Townes Van Zandt.

Well, I thought that sealed the deal. You don’t play songs like that unless you mean it right? No, I was wrong. I got back and Wes had left and hasn’t been back since and it has been just about a year now, and my heart has not completely healed all the way (mine doesn’t heal fast, some people have fast healing hearts, mine just doesn’t work like that).

The contentious thesis of this; I won’t be gone long, just a few weeks, but when I get back I hope you are around so I can see your name and say JOHN ROBB!!!!!!!!!!!!! I MISSED YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Moral number two of the story; don’t play songs like Close Your Eyes I’ll Be Here In The Morning if you don’t mean it, it’s bound to break someone’s heart.

Ok, here is the song I am going to give to you, but want you to be careful with. I betchya Brett Ashely crucified some minds in her day.

The two of you make my day every day. M, you have the rulebook and everyone here knows it. I’ll be back in a few weeks. Essie, thank you for spending so much time in here, it adds to the general warmth of the thread and I see you have been crossing off your list quite nicely in the past week or so.

I think I can speak for us both. We'll be here when you get back

Well, we might go away, too, but just for a drive or something. Really, that's all. So if we're not here the very hour you happen to return, don't get worried or anything. We're still around. You just have a good time, and stay safe. Oh, here's a picture for your wallet so you don't forget us!

Wowzers

I came back 5 pages to tell you a "rule" and here I landed...right on our heads. It must be a sign ;)

If you go back 5 pages or more to "duel" (lol) or simply re-engage, you get 10 bonus points. I told you I have Kinks that I'm working on/out but going back pages to "play", We could get lost in here like Tron.

Wait a minute

Kindly note: we do *not* land on our heads. WE land on our feet. Check it out: that film clip shows the "alternate ending." Just like in real life, we all live happily ever after.:)

Tron sounds like it has a great plot. I stopped reading when it said the computer said if Dillinger tried to stop its plans, it would expose his plagiarism. I didn't want to know the end. I want to see that movie.

Hmm. I think I've just gotten a clue...

Johncarter, Sierra, & Promisekept, Steve024

Johncarter; you are loyal fan number one of this thread and I have always appreciated it, and I think of you whenever a classic rock station flips on. Sierra; I hope you enjoy your summer concerts, especially Fleetwood Mac one and if you think about it and remember to do so maybe you could take some pictures or video or something and report back to the jam session. Promisekept, as per usual thank you for all your contributions here. I have been slacking on listening to every video in here for a while, but I have made sure to get to your regional posts and it sounds like you have some great talent near and or around you. Steve, hope you are having a nice summer, I found Uncle Lucius on my ipod the other day and I remembered right away it was a video you played in here a long time ago. I remember this thread pretty far back, I’m getting into him. See ya guys soon.

Beautiful Soul, jrd, go with God wherever good will be found

Thanks for taking some time for your busy ears to open up to some of my favorite, young, local talent. Here's one I've posted before, but it might be an especially nice tune to step out with on your journey.

#Alt18 Countdown: Week of 5/24

There is one new song to the countdown this week and Knox Hamilton returns: “Work it Out” by Knox Hamilton and “Digital Witness” by St. Vincent kicked off Panama (2 weeks) and CHVRCHES (7 weeks). WATERS lost the most ground this week, dropping 5 positions to #12.For the second week in a row, our biggest gainer was Tove Lo, moving another 4 spots up to #6. Debuting 14 weeks ago and floating around the Top 3 since the end of April, “Waves” by Sleeper Agent finally takes the #1 spot away from the Black Keys.

My recommendations: Habits, Best Friend, Waves, Dangerous, Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?, Mind Over Matter, All of the People, Got to my Head, Fever, Shark Attack, Shiela Put the Knife Down, I Wanna Get Better, and Take It or Leave It.

I suggest we
Learn to love ourselves,
Before its made illegal
When will we learn, When will we change
Just in time to see it all come down

Dear Mountaincat

It seems that we are often ships in the night here. We pass by each other often just missing each other. You were here last year when this happened, so you know the drill, I’m unplugging, but it won’t be nearly as long this time. But I think of you often and will miss your Sunday morning gospel sets. I hope you are having a wonderful summer and that your garden is doing well. Someday we shall slow dance in a burning room.
